Omar Infante is in the Royals starting lineup Monday. He is batting second.
This is good news for the Royals who were hoping that their new second baseman wasn't going to need a DL stint. It could be trouble though for fantasy owners moving forward as the bone spurs in his elbow aren't going to magically disappear. He could be dealing with soreness all year long and if it becomes too unbearable, then surgery to clean it out would be the next step. For now, it seems safe to have him in your lineup, but make sure you have a solid contingency plan.ANALYST: Howard Bender
